Combined Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) increases by 5.2 per cent (provisional) in March, 2024 as compared to March, 2023


Production of Cement, Coal, Electricity, Natural Gas, Steel and Crude Oil record positive growth

By PIB Delhi

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) increased by 5.2 per cent (provisional) in March, 2024 as compared to the Index in March, 2023. The production of Cement, Coal, Electricity, Natural Gas, Steel and Crude Oil recorded positive growth in March 2024. The details of annual and monthly indices and growth rates are provided at Annex I and Annex II respectively.

The ICI measures the combined and individual performance of production of eight core industries viz. Cement, Coal, Crude Oil, Electricity, Fertilizers, Natural Gas, Refinery Products and Steel. The Eight Core Industries comprise 40.27 percent of the weight of items included in the Index of Industrial Production (IIP).

The final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for December 2023 is revised to 5.0per cent. The cumulative growth rate of ICI during 2023-24 reported7.5 per cent (provisional) as compared to the corresponding period of last year.

The summary of the Index of Eight Core Industries is given below:

Cement – Cement production (weight: 5.37 per cent) increased by 10.6 per cent in March, 2024 over March, 2023. Its cumulative index increased by 9.1 per cent during 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.

Coal – Coal production (weight: 10.33 per cent) increased by 8.7 per cent in March, 2024 over March, 2023. Its cumulative index increased by 11.7 per cent during 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.

Crude Oil – Crude Oil production (weight: 8.98 per cent) increased by 2.0 per cent in March, 2024 over March, 2023. Its cumulative index increased by 0.6 per cent during 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.

Electricity – Electricity generation (weight: 19.85 per cent) increased by 8.0 per cent in March, 2024 over March, 2023. Its cumulative index increased by 7.0 per cent during 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.

Fertilizers – Fertilizer production (weight: 2.63 per cent) declined by 1.3 per cent in March 2024 over March, 2023. Its cumulative index increased by 3.7 per cent during 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.

Natural Gas – Natural Gas production (weight: 6.88 per cent) increased by 6.3 per cent in March, 2024 over March, 2023. Its cumulative index increased by 6.1 per cent during 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.
